Arts Session

The last three sessions have a more artistic background and wrap up the day perfectly. Firstly, DLD curator Steffi Czerny and Hans Ulbrich Obrist from Serpentine Galleries reminisce about the beginnings of DLD when they did not even have wireless internet at the conference venue. At the end, Czerny reveals one of her dream for the DLD future: She always wanted to take the whole DLD community on a hike from Munich to Verona. Let’s see if that will come true in 2016.

Their “Seismographic Talk” is followed by an astonishing performance by the artist Isabelle Lewis. She first outlines her theories on the history, importance and significance of dance through the centuries. After performing an experimental head banging dance she goes on explaining the relationship between dance and technology: “Youtube for example enables us to see and get inspired by dance styles from all over the world”, she says still out of breath from her dance. Lewis ends with drawing on this year’s conference theme: „It is only the beginning of a new, more sensuous relationship with our bodies“, she says.

Afterwards the artists Simon Denny, Yuri Pattinson and Timur Si-Qin take the stage for the traditional “Art Session” together with host Hans Ulbrich Obrist. Simon Denny starts out with giving a presentation on his work, which includes an analysis of the past designs of the DLD conference, e.g. slides of speakers as well as other projects on media conferences he has done. Another highlight is the following presentation of Yuri Pattison’s work, which focuses on the ways in which the virtual world permeates material reality.
